Fox News host: “The Pentagon likes to say our diversity is our strength. What a bunch of garbage.”

Pete Hegseth: “In the military, our diversity is not our strength. Our unity is our strength. We need a commander-in-chief who understands that, Donald Trump certainly does, getting woke out will go a long way to making sure we are top in the world.”

PETE HEGSETH (FOX HOST): A commander-in-chief needs to be focused on winning the wars we fight, and that means installing leadership at the Pentagon who are laser-focused on that. Unfortunately, the incentive for generals under the Biden administration and the Obama administration was to conform to ideologies of leftist politicians who are ramming stuff into the Pentagon that has nothing to do with winning wars. What is your gender? What is your race? DEI, CRT, are we driving electric tanks? Are we saving the climate with the military? None of that is important to the men and women who I served with. We were focused on succeeding in the mission we were given. The Pentagon likes to say our diversity is our strength. What a bunch of garbage. In the military, our diversity is not our strength. Our unity is our strength. We need a commander-in-chief who understands that, Donald Trump certainly does, getting woke out will go a long way to making sure we are top in the world.
